About this event

About Windowless Worlds:

Centred on shards of shattered window glass collected from the streets of Beirut, Windowless Worlds offers an unconventional lens to reflect on trauma, resilience, recovery and accountability. Bringing together glass objects from Lebanon, Egypt, Palestine, Syria and Turkey along with Australian works from the National Art Glass collection, Windowless Worlds critiques a world that is broken, but also a world where hope survives.Exhibition curated by Dr Sam Bowker in conjunction with Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.
